Smoke could be seen coming from a boat in a Portsmouth boatyard following an explosion and fire on board
Emergency crews were called to the Portsmouth Marine Engineering private boatyard when a blaze broke out on Sunday afternoon.
Three people were on board when there was an explosion in the cabin.
As a result, two of the people were treated for smoke inhalation, while the other suffered a head injury.
The explosion took place at around 1pm on Sunday and the fire crews spent 20 minutes putting out the fire.
An investigation into the incident is now taking place, however it is thought it may have been caused by a gas leak.
